Mykonos Agios Ioannis beach

General information

Agios Ioannis Mykonos: Considered the most beautiful beach on the island's southwest coast, Agios Ioannis boasts soft sand and crystalline blue waters that are ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The beach was named after the small church that is located just above.
Extensive views of the channel between Mykonos and Delos are lavishly offered while the sunset from there is also exceptional. The area emits serenity and calmness, making the beach the perfect option for guests seeking some tranquility away from the hoards of tourists. 
No watersport facilities are available and sun umbrellas are provided by establishments. 

Fun fact: The award-winning "Shirley Valentine" film (1989) features scenes shot in Agios Ioannis beach!
